Yesterday, I announced that I published a new book of fine art images, "Surface Tensions". My goal is to do at least one project a year - making art keeps me inspired. Making art also keeps me grounded. And, my fine art pieces are the inspiration behind my scarf designs.
Surface Tensions is a project that has been in the works for over a year. The images started out by testing new techniques, both in the original photograph as well as in the post processing. Every time I'd make one, I'd put it away in a folder. More trial and error. More images into the folder and pretty soon I had a collection of over 50 images made from various surfaces of water.
Then, Blurb has a December sale - its the extra motivation I need to pull together the images for the collection, and therefore the book.
And, some of the images will be the perfect starting point for a new scarf design. Perhaps one of these:
